Abstract: Several models which analyse count data have been proposed in econometric literature. These models allow the discrete, nonnegative nature of specific phenomena of interest to be gathered in a appropriate way and can be useful for the explanation of specific preference structures among individuals. In this work, an analysis of the number of wine types consumed by residents of Tenerife is carried out, with an aim to observe which characteristics determine the exclusivity in its consumption, given the current context of increased competition in this sector. The specific characteristics of the considered variable allow the study to cover two aspects. The first is methodological, and is seen by the variety of models that may be considered in this case. This focus consists in comparing several possibilities, which fit the type of count data involved. The second aspect is clearly empirical, and is based on the description of not only the most appropriate decision-making mechanism for the study but in the identification of those factors that explain the diversity in wine consumption.
